Can you please make a tutorial on how you did the gifs in the spine breaker comic? The bouncy heads!
Yes no probl♥ tbh if it’s not difficult to do ahah
I work on sai and pcs6
If you never made gifs on pcs6 I know it can be pretty confusing so I’ll try to make it very detailed!
First of all the drawings. Draw your character(s) and create two different files. One for the head and the other for the body+backround etc
Save the head as png –
>(32bpp ARBG) meaning that the head will be transparent (there will be no white backround around it) and the body as png –
> (24bpp RBG).
For the next steps I work on PCS6! We will start the animation!
Open the two files on PCS6. Paste the head.png on the body png. So you have this
Then go on the timeline window (if you don’t have it go on window — timeline) this is where we are going to make the animation! And click on create an animation (mine is in french so I don’t know what’s the exact name)
So you have this
(1. I put the frame at 0.1 s and instead of 1 time I choose always, but it’s up to you!)
Create a new frame in the timeline (2.) and lower the head (only on the frame 2)
Then create a third frame and raise the head a bit. And again and again until the head is at the the same height as the first frame, I created 3 other frames.
Now play the aimation, it should like this!
It looks great and you can stop here if you want!
But if you want to make it even more bouncier (*-*) go back to the frame 2. And create another layer of the “head” (ctrl j)
Click on the eye of the “head layer” (still on frame 2) to unsee it. Go on “head 2″ — (ctrl t) and transform the head so it looks like this (kinda like a crêpe)
(note: if you go on frame 1 and you can see “head” and “head 2″: click on the eye of the “head 2″ to unsee it (still on frame 1) then go on frame 2 and click again on the eye to make it reappear.
Play the animation and ayyyy bouncy head!
To save the gif go on Files - Save for web - Save
And tada you’re done, good job :^DD If it’s still not clear don’t hesitate to send me a message!
I love your art style so much! It's always so detailed and I love it! Can I ask how you draw Lapis' hair? For me it's IMPOSSIBLE but you make it look so easy!
Hi @kylie0321! Belive it or not, this is the most difficult question i have been ask so far xD because i dont have a WAY to draw hair…i just follow my heart o_O haha but i will try to explain what i do when i copy a character.
First i recollect
some pictures from the character, you will notice that Lapis hair never looks exactly the same, so you have to recognize the most distinguishable features, in other words, you have to simplify it.
Here you can see how the crewniverse draws her hair differently, so i found 3 features that always repeat:
1- The triangle-like back of her hair (? (SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH)
2- the spongy (? bangs, sometimes more fuzzy or bigger
3- and the sideburns, i dont now if its ok to call them that, but you get it xD
So, you can start simple, a triangle, a semicircle and the pointy sideburns. Then just add some movement and details and you are done. I think that whatever style you have, if you start with those 3 things it will always look like Lapis!!
como você edita seus icons?queria ter uma noção de como é,obrigada
Você vai abrir seu Ps
e vai estar assim, você clica em arquivo, (irei colocar uma linha vermelha para ficar mais fácil)
você tem que clicar em novo, pois ali vai dar a opção do tamanho do seu icon, header ou que tu for fazer
esses são os tamanhos que eu uso na header, mas para os meus icons eu uso 300x300, ai você pode colocar o tamanho que você achar melhor
depois de escolher o tamanho e tudo certinho, vai abrir assim e agora você vai fazer esse procedimento
arquivo > inserir
vai abrir as pastas, e você escolhe a imagem que queira editar, e ficará assim
vou dar uma dica, porque as vezes na hora de editar a foto, ela acaba ficando esticada e estraga totalmente o icon
ali na parte de cima, aonde está em vermelho é aonde está a opção de manter as proporções, e aonde está em branco, é o lugar que você deve clicar toda vez que for para você editar seu icon ou sua header, depois de “centralizar” o icon, você pode puxar a foto sem medo que ela fique com aquela aparência de que foi esticada.
Depois de editar, é só apertar enter e salvar, e para salvar é só ir em arquivo e vai aparecer a opção de “salvar como” nos prints, dá para ver…
ESPERO TER AJUDADO, EU SOU PÉSSIMA PARA EXPLICAR, MAS TENTEI AJUDAR, ENFIM, QUALQUER DÚVIDA, SÓ ME PERGUNTAR!! BEIJINHOS
Oh, sorry I didn't include this in my other message, but I was wondering- if you don't mind- how do you do your art style? It has a very sketchy type look to it, and I love it so much!
Thanks anon! :)
First of all, english is not my mother tongue so sorry for the typos!! -_-U
I think the sketchy look of my art is because i am really untidy he he ( or is it sloppy the word ? idk ). I work on photoshop and my favorite brushes are the crayon ones, i recently bougth some from Kyle Webster ,but you can find good brushes for free too !! ;)
I made a little tutorial, hope it helps!!
1- I start with an impossible to undestand set of lines, this skecth here is so clean that looks like a finished lineart compared to my usual sketches xD
2- Then i lower the opacity of the sketch an draw the lineart, i think the crayon brushes help a lot with the skecthy look!
3- And then i just add color with the same crayon brush. I like to paint fast , and i dont look for perfection. Another thing that i do is to not turn off the skecth layer, i just leave it there with the opacity low. Add some shadows and u are done! :D
Anon, practice a lot! the key is practice. I love trying new styles and i copy the ones i like from others, i know copying (? sounds bad, but with time it will help u develop ur own style! and to improve yourself !! woohoo
A lot of people asking me about how I choose my colors when I paint so here is a daily training I’ve made during a pretty long time. With a lot of practice you will be able to find the right color almost everytime. Hope it will help some of you :)
